representative for jason wu. can you tell me about the gown? and tell me -- hi, it's alina cho from cnn. okay. she's sending me a description of the gown right now, but it is jason wu. this is -- anderson, i have to tell you, i'm shocked. this is remarkable. that four years later, she would choose jason wu again. she looked radiant in that red gown. i have been speaking, as you might imagine, to many designers about this. and what is interesting is actually when i was putting my piece together and talking about the process of selecting the gown, i, of course, naturally reached out to jason wu personally and to his representatives. and i was told in no uncertain terms that this time around, jason actually didn't want to speak about the process and what it has meant to him. and so i guess now we know why. it is an extraordinary decision on the first lady's part. a little surprising, i have to say, but as also, the first lady does look beautiful. and i have to say, as a woman who has bangs, i like the new haircut as well. >> you did interview jason recently. and my understanding is that the firs
